Dave Aron - On the Road with Snoop Dogg
In this video, filmed during Snoop Dogg’s sound check at the House of Blues in Boston, Dave Aron shares some of his techniques of live sound mixing, using plugins. According to Dave, some of the benefits of using plugins for live sound include: superior sonic clarity, saving rack space, the ability to save presets, and having all of his sound processing tools on his laptop, so he can use them with any mixing board he encounters on tour. Dave explains how he uses the Waves CLA-76, the C4, and SSL plugins to increase Snoop Dogg’s vocal presence. He also shares his secret of how he makes Snoop's mic level stay above the music level automatically, using the Vocal Rider plugin.
